Wearing earrings with short hair is nowhere near as tricky as many women think. Choose either large, statement earrings, or minimalist earrings such asear studs. The intention is to draw all the attention to your face. Earrings with diamonds are eminently suited to this. If you have a somewhat longer face, it is best to go for large creole, or hoop, earrings. For a round face you should opt for long pendant earrings.

Always go for earrings which match your hair colour. For instance, yellow gold earrings go beautifully with light brown hair. Platinum, white gold or even yellow gold versions suit black hair perfectly. Do you have short, grey hair? Then ruby or sapphire earrings go very well.

Which earrings should I not wear with short hair?

You should not wear earrings that reach right down to your shoulders, if you have short hair. Avoid earrings that are simply too large, too striking, or too impressive. Always keep your earrings in proportion with your hairstyle and other jewellery. With a striking necklace, it's better to wear a subtle pair of earrings such as diamond stud or minimalist earrings. This maintains the balance. Do you wear glasses, too? Then best go for minimalist earrings. Long or large earrings upset the overall balance in combination with glasses.

Can I also wear long earrings with my short hair?

In the past, it was an unwritten rule that you couldn't wear long earrings with short hair. That is outdated today. Of course, you can also wear long pendant earrings with a sassy short bob. Just take a look at this photo of actress Jennifer Lawrence. She knows all too well how she can highlight her cool short hair by wearing a special pair of earrings. Which earrings suit you depends more on the shape of your face than on your hairstyle.

Which earrings suit my face?

For women with a round face, this is widest at the cheekbones. Earrings can be relatively long on a woman with a round face, and even drop down as far as the chin. The distance the jewellery drops will visually refine and balance the face. Select long, slender earrings with a square or rectangular pendant to make the most of the contrast between a round face and the geometric shapes of the earrings.
These days there seems to be hardly any connection between hairstyle and choice of earrings.
Do you have a somewhat angular face? You can break up angular lines using elegant shapes, forming a beautiful whole. So go for rather short earrings. Diamond studs or short, round pendant earrings are a good option, absolutely.
Choose earrings whose shape is "inverted" compared to the shape of your face.

Which precious metal should I choose for my earrings?

How do I coordinate my makeup and earrings?

Fashionistas know how important it is to match jewellery and outfit. But actually that applies equally to your makeup. Yellow gold earrings are best combined with golden bronze eye shadow. Particularly in summer, when your skin has a beautiful tan. White gold earrings go better with a light and cool eye shadow, a shade darker than the colour of your eyes. Are your eyes green? Then you can shine thanks to the combination of rose gold earrings and copper eye shadow.
And what about your lips? If you like bright red lipstick, long pendant earrings should attract attention to your jawline and mouth. Choose a pair of white gold diamond earrings. If you prefer keeping your makeup and lipstick subtle, then go for more modest earrings, such as studs.
